Alas, I’m still holed up with pneumonia over here. This past year has been one of the worst years on record for me health-wise, from a near-fatal car accident to catching some major bugs going around (I’ve had this latest one for almost a month). My immune system is rather shot.
So alas, my days of creating and modeling have been at a standstill. But I just got in some pictures from a shoot I did a couple months ago with visiting NYC Photographer, Richard Scalzo. One of my favourite makeup artists, Dustin of DSL Design and Talent was also on board for the shoot, so it was a fun team to work with. There were a few different looks done (corporate, fitness, etc.), but this one was by far my favourite (bet you can’t guess why…)!
I got to reuse my old Catwoman suit, donned a pair of light-up cyber glasses from Illumi Nation (which I’ve been eyeing for a potential Ingress Resistance costume I’m designing. Yeah yeah, I’m a nerd), and stepped up to shoot as a sci-fi heroine. I loved Scalzo’s lighting scheme for this, rather reminiscent of the new Star Trek posters. It made me feel like I was doing a promo shoot for a sci-fi movie or TV show. (And with Exhibit A here you can see how ridiculously long my torso actually is! Finding tops and dresses long enough is a real joy, lemme tell you.)
Fun fact: The gun I’m holding is a prop blaster from the 1980s show, V. I grew up knowing the show from my Dad and enjoying the new series (although good heavens did it end badly when they discovered they were being cancelled. ‘Twas a pity).
